Dabble in Seashells

Educational Camp


This 2 day camp explores the world of mollusks using Jack Lightbourn’s world-renowned shell collection, and real specimens. Campers will learn the major classes and characteristics of mollusks, such as which are edible, or venomous, or can produce pearls! A dissection of a clam shell and a deep-water pteropod shell lab are conducted, and campers get to take home a mini micro-shell collection too.
